The Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning program offers an Associates of Applied Science or Certificate of Specialization.  Students will learn the basics of installation, maintenance, and repair, preparing them to enter the workforce as technicians. Today’s air conditioning and heating systems control the temperature, humidity, and cleanliness of the air in homes, offices, factories, and schools as people find way to make their environment comfortable.

Controlling the environment is no longer a luxury, but a necessity. Modern refrigeration systems make it possible to safely store food, drugs, and other perishable items. Energy efficiency and the cost of operation of HVAC/R equipment affects us all as a society and individuals.

East Central offers two tracks in HVAC/R including a Day and Evening part-time option. Please consult degree plans and meet with the ECC HVAC/R Program Coordinator/Instructor for advisement.

 Mission Statement:“East Central College will be the Innovative Premier Educational Provider of HVAC Technology with Advanced Concepts in Energy Solutions”


The Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning program has one degree and one certificate offering for students to consider. The degree and certificate are based on the number of credit hours needed for completion.
